After some really easy internet arrangements with Wil from Tres Pescados, I met my guide, Eloy Gonzales at 7:00 AM sharp. We headed out to the flats of Ambergis Caye with clear skies and a little wind. As soon as we stopped the boat, Eloy pointed to a dark spot and said "We have permit today!" I looked and didn't see anything, but I obediently made a long cast. I caught a strong fighting bonefish as the permit moved on. Eventually, I started seeing the fish, and we landed many bonefish that took my line out to the backing. All day long, we slowly followed schools of permit; I learned just how elusive they are. I broke my line twice on the permit, but never landed one. The hard charging bonefish and the brilliant skies made up for it. I'll return to fish with Tres Pescados in the near future with the hope of another permit chase!
Thanks & Best Regards,
